Michael Avenatti: Donald Trump’s Worst Decision Could Be Mistreating Michael Cohen
REID: "On the Rudy Giuliani front, Michael Avenatti, you've been very critical of Rudy Giuliani's representation of Trump. What do you make of his statements attempting to mitigate the impact of this tape?"
AVENATTI: "I thought they were dumb, quite honestly. I don't understand what he's doing. I continue to be perplexed by exactly what Rudy Giuliani is doing. He used to be a great lawyer. He used to be a good spokesperson. I think he's been nothing, but a walking disaster for the President and for their legal approach to this. I don't understand why he would say that. There's no way this tape is exculpatory, meaning it provides evidence of Mr. Trump's innocence. That's a ridiculous assertion. I don't know why he would say that. But let me just say this. Of all the decisions this president has made over the last 24 months, Joy, I think the decision to place Michael Cohen on an island and not take care of him and not keep him close will go down as one of the worst, if not the worst decision that he made."
